Thread: K3731 Martians Fury 1
15/06/2019 20:52:40

Hello all I know I have not been keeping this thread up to date but I have been plodding on after the initial health scare both upper and lower wings are complete upper wing cabane structure fitted and clad with balsa and strips of solartex and also all covered as of the last 30mins lower wing still to cover them fine tune lower wing seating. I must say I have never worked on large wings that are so delicate before so it has been slow going. I used carbon ribbon on the aileron shroud also on trailing edge of upper wing plus reinforced lower wing spars with the carbon ribbon to this is to give better strength while manhandling the wings during assembly .not looking forward to the rigging. couple of pics of the wings when last took pics of them will post some up to date pics in a few days

Looking really good Danny . 're the cowl i have found two ways to tone down the foil number one a spray of rustoleum chrome which can be buffed up to match litho ,number two a light polish with Autosol which is also perfect for polishing the litho

If it's any help Danny I used solartex on the uc struts then sprayed with rustoleum chrome I am happy with it and will do the same on the centre wing struts . On another point I would have wrapped the silk using weak pva glue

Yes I read that Glyn it looks like a game changer radiotherapy is not pleasant at the best of times so minimising the potential damage can only be a blessing lets hope it becomes widely available for all soon . To all of you who are waiting for results I hope the results come back good .

She was not happy but I persevered the burns will heal in time p.s divorce comes through next week 😍 . Not done that yet Danny but personally I don't see it as possible just taking the dog for walk. Will try to explain my plan later

Carefully jig for alignment then accurately mark up the piano wire ( as if you wouldn't 😛 ) remove clips and disassemble then solder clips on wife , if any misalignment reheat with a large iron or as I did a soldering gun .Good luck
